I ride with the Patriot Guard and I belong to a MC group

KNIGHTS OF THE PARIOT, we do help for vets and also community cleanups and such.

I have a VW trike that I ride , did have a V Twin but got the trike and liked it better.

Hey Rick,

I DO hope you had a great birthday!

The Patriot Guard is an extremely honorable and noble thing to do, and it speaks well of you. I attended a Combat Veterans Motorcycle Assn. funeral for one of their departed, and although I am not a member of the group, as a long time vet, I felt it was the right thing to do, as well as something I would appreciate done for me, to extend a last honor in this fellow vets passing, by attending.

The procession of motorcycles to the cemetary was at least a mile long in length, with the CVMA members riding their bikes, 2 by 2, a total number to be 150 at least. What a sight it was to see,from my vantage point, being situated probably 20 bikes from the end of the bike line, all the members ahead of me were wearing their distinctive veterans insignia, while cars also in the procession brought up the balance of the long line. The entire procession had a police escort, which allowed the participants to continue the slow and cold 8 miles or so ride, without any stops until arriving at the cemetary.

Getting to the point of all this, when the procession arrived, the Patriot Guard members were waiting, each standing at attention, each holding vertically, a flag staff bearing the U.S. Stars and Stripes. They were situated probably 20 feet apart, forming kind of a buffer, to keep unwelcome types from interupting the funeral service.

These Patriot Guard members served their country, and now they are now serving their fellow vets, when needed.

Thanks again, Rick!
